What They Say
“I like their stick-to-it-tiveness (sic.). As one example, we have found foreign trademark offices do not treat trademark registrations the same way as a registration would be treated by the USPTO. Cowan, Liebowitz, with our advance permission, fights to get the registration the way we want it. In my experience, they always win.”2021 The Legal 500
Mary Donovan “demonstrates exceptional resourcefulness and judgement, and guides her clients in a way that is sensitive to their budgetary concerns. She is well connected and highly regarded in the wider trademark community, and has excellent relations with local counsel worldwide. She is a pleasure to work with on all aspects of trademark prosecution, enforcement and litigation, as well as unfair competition, internet and advertising issues.”2022 WTR 1000 – The World’s Leading Trademark Professionals
”In cases where settlements are possible, [CLL's] lawyers will always foster settlement. However, in cases where they have to litigate hard, they do. Moreover, the time given to each matter is ample despite their busy schedules. I’ve always found that they make clients feel special and, often, the feeling is that my matter is the only matter they are handling because of the constant care given to it. This is rare in law firm partners.”2022 The Legal 500
